Determination of blood glucose concentration is one of the most important measurements in clinical chemistry worldwide. Analyzers in central laboratories (CL) and point-of-care tests (POCT) are both frequently used. In Germany, regular participation in external quality assessment (EQA) schemes is mandatory for laboratories performing glucose testing.

Measurement of HbA1c is an essential laboratory measure for the follow-up and therapy decision-making in patients with diabetes. HbA1c is one of the measurands in laboratory medicine that have to be s...
The commentary tries to reply to the following three questions: Are External Quality Assessment Schemes (EQAS) really fit for purpose? Are all schemes equivalent and sufficiently harmonized? Is the ro...
Reporting on the presence of antimicrobial resistance is of considerable concern both for individual patient care and for understanding the underlying health status within the community at large. Anti...
Our goals were to screen newborns and characterize the occurrence of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency in southwestern China. Meanwhile, we would like to analyze the factors that mig...
Participation in EQA schemes, where available, is mandatory for the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). No EQA scheme currently exists for TPMT and thiopurine metabolites, which i...
Participants will perform blood glucose monitoring (BGM) over the course of 14 days and, in parallel, wear continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems. Because current CGM systems typicall...

Diabetes in pregnancy carries significant pregnancy specific risks and requires frequent glucose monitoring to reduce these risks. This project compares the effect of two incentive schemes...
During this study, we propose to assess the utility of Continuous Glucose Measurements (CGM) in a group of Type 1 diabetic patients treated with an implanted insulin pump. Patients will pa...
Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.
